Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A dual-language edition of Chinese stories-featuring many stories appearing in English for the first time.

Here is the perfect introduction to contemporary fiction from the world's most spoken language. These eight short stories, with parallel translations, offer students at all levels the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of contemporary literature without having constantly to refer to a dictionary. Richly diverse in themes and styles, the stories are by both new and well-established writers and range from a story by Li Rui about the honest simplicity of a Shanxi farmer to a story by Ma Yuan exposing the seamy underside of contemporary urban society. Complete with notes, these selections make excellent reading in either language.

About the Author

John Balcom is an award-winning translator, a past president of the American Literary Translators Association, and an associate professor and the head of the Chinese program at the Monterey Institute of International Studies.
